Well here we go...Ryan Hunter-Reay was the winner after a 10 lap shootout to the end, his first win at the 500. Helio Castroneves did a great job of fighting for first, but it wasn't meant to be. Third place went to Marco Andretti. The Andretti Team had for cars in the top six places.

There were a few people that I watched during the race. Ed Carpenter, the oval master, was bouncing between first and second in the last forty laps bringing the crowd to its feet. Unfortunately he crashed out on lap 175. Tony Kanaan just couldn't get it together and ended up in 26th. Takuma Sato ended up in the 19th. JacquesVilleneuve, who hasn't raced in open-wheel in what seems like forever, ended up in 14th. Carlos Munoz, who as a rookie came in 2nd, finished with a very decent 4th. Juan Pablo Montoya, who has been away from Indianpolis for 14 years, posted the fastest lap at 225 miles per hour and ended up in a very decent 5th. Nice job!
